Phoenix Releases Multitracks for Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Phoenix band

Attention all you budding mash-up artists and DJs: Phoenix has just released the multitrack recordings of every one of their songs on Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. This means that it’s now easier than ever to remix and mash-up Phoenix’s latest album. It’s a pretty awesome move on their part, if you ask me.

Here are the top ten LPs that fell through the cracks in ‘09:

Remix Fridays: Chromeo, Kanye, Fatboy Slim, Grizzly Bear, Dead Prez, MSTRKRFT, Phoenix & More


Yessss, it’s finally Friday. This week, we’ve got Chromeo, Kanye West, Fatboy Slim, Grizzly Bear, Dead Prez, MSTRKRFT, Phoenix and more. I’m definitely a huge fan of LMFAO’s remix of Kanye’s “Paranoid.” It’s about 700 times better than the original. Also, this week, I’ve included a mash-up that’s too good to have left out. It’s The Hood Internet’s “Two Weeks of Hip-hop,” which is a mash-up of Grizzly Bear and Dead Prez. Have an awesome Columbus Day weekend, and enjoy.
